smart causal BEST OF 4 Vardy has retired from England duty to focus on his club career England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures 4 Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade impact LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS gameday Tottenham v Brighton LIVE: talkSPORT commentary and team news for Boxing Day opener Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade silverware Gary Cahill has been part of the England set-up for eight years MONEY 4 RANKED Vardy made four appearances in Russia but only started one match, with Harry Kane the undisputed first-choice striker.He believes he is likely to remain on the fringes under Southgate, and reckons it will benefit him more to remain with his club than link up with England for international games.“When you get selected, you want to be playing,” he admitted.“If you’re playing week in, week out for your club, you want to be going to England to play as well.“And if it’s not happening, then for me personally now, at this age, it’s better to be at home, spending that time with my family and training with my club, preparing for the next game after the international break.” “I have played pretty solid over the seven or eight years I have been involved, something again I have been very proud of – I can see now it is kind of going towards a younger generation,” he added.“For me to take a step back now is the perfect time, but at the same time in your football career you never want to shut a door completely.“I have been hugely honoured to play for my country and I would never shut the door, if I was ever needed in the future then obviously I’m there.“Such is my relationship with the manager, he was fantastic at the end of the tournament, I had a good chat with him and he could see where I was coming from, understood the situation but at the same time I wouldn’t want to totally shut the door.“He knows my opinion and I know his, I have said that, in the future, if there are injuries or I am needed to come and play then of course I am available.“But in terms of the next meeting coming up and the friendlies where maybe they are looking at other players, I think it is probably more beneficial for them to be playing than me travelling there.” Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack Jamie Vardy and Gary Cahill both effectively called time on their international careers on Tuesday.The duo, part of the England squad which reached the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, have informed manager Gareth Southgate they do not wish to be selected going forward. Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Best clips, calls and talkSPORT moments of 2019, feat Hearn, McCoist and more Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade REVEALED Southgate will name his first squad since the finals this Thursday, for the clashes against Spain and Switzerland later this month.Vardy has decided to all-but retire from the national team after scoring seven goals in 26 appearances, saying he will only play for the Three Lions again if there is an injury crisis.Cahill, meanwhile, says he is stepping back after representing England on 61 occasions and has not completely closed the door on a return.It seems highly unlikely, however, that either player will be selected by Southgate again.Leicester City striker Vardy, 31, told the Guardian: “I’m not getting any younger and you can see, to be fair to the gaffer, he wants to make it more youthful, which obviously had its benefits during the World Cup – we got to the semi-finals and finished fourth, which is equal to the furthest we have ever been on foreign soil.“So I just said to Gareth that I think it’s probably best from now on, especially with the way he wants to go, to bring youngsters in who he thinks have got the ability and start nurturing them into international football.” Jamie Vardy has decided to end his England career after 26 caps and seven goals possible standings Vardy added: “I explained it all to Gareth and he was fine with my decision.“I mentioned it to him after the World Cup had finished, out in Russia, and then I spoke to him on the phone a couple of weeks ago.“He let it die down a bit, so that I could have a bit more time to think, and then rang me up just to make sure I wasn’t just taking the mickey in Russia. But I hadn’t changed my mind. G“Gareth said that he felt I still had a lot to offer, and we’ve not shut the door completely. If the worst came to happen and everyone was injured, then obviously I wouldn’t say no.”Cahill captained the Three Lions several times, with the 32-year-old part of the squad at the 2014 and 2018 World Cups as well as Euro 2016. 4 Gary Cahill featured just once for England at the 2018 World Cup highlights
A CO DONEGAL Pub is celebrating – after being named Ireland Pub of the Year.The prestigious Georgina Campbell Hospital Awards 2013 named Nancy’s Pub in Ardara as the best in the country.And the county picked up a second award, as the Beach House in Buncrana was named Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year. Speaking about the Nancy’s award, food writer Georgina said: “Banning the term ’gastropub’ generated acres of publicity for a UK food guide last year – and they were quite right; it’s unpleasant and over-used – and, like the ubiquitous ‘eatery’, is not in the Guide’s vocabulary.“But we’re all in favour of pubs that do great food, of course – and many of our best had been doing just this for many years before the unfortunate term ‘gastropub’ saw the light of day.“It’s not all about the food of course – character, friendliness, comfort, a sense of community, all those things are part of what makes a great pub – but good food is an important focus for all of our Star Pubs, including Nancy’s Bar, which has been a key part of this little heritage town renowned for its tweeds and handknits for far longer than anyone can remember.“The original Nancy, who ran the pub in Victorian times, was the great great great grandmother of the present owner, Charlie McHugh and, together with his wife Ann (who’s responsible for developing the food side of the business), he has ensured that everything is done just as it should be. “It’s a charmingly higgledy-piggledy place which simply oozes with character and warmth, there’s great live music and the food is traditional Irish cooking at its best: only gorgeous!“No wonder everybody loves Nancy’s, it’s just a perfect Irish pub.”And she heaped praise on the Beach House too.She said of the Buncrana eatier: “The leading restaurants in major cities, and their chefs, tend to hog the spotlight at awards and, while the size of the population means more top rank establishments to choose from, excellence is no respecter of location – or style. The Casual Dining Restaurant of the Year aims to highlight the quality of smaller establishments, especially those serving outstanding daytime food.“Lovely views across Lough Swilly may be the trump card at Claire McGowan’s smart-casual restaurant, but it has plenty else going for it too. Finding this well-named spot is a joy for a lot of happy visitors – who then have the added pleasure of walking off their meals on the lovely sandy beach afterwards. “Welcoming signs at the door ensure that nobody passes unknowingly and, once inside, the stylish yet laid-back two-storey restaurant and a bit of banter from friendly staff will have you hooked.“And they are blessed with their talented head chef, Peter Cheesman, who has an enviable reputation in Donegal for showcasing local produce – and it is well earned, as he cooks with stylish simplicity; everything is freshly made on site, and top quality ingredients translate into very good food indeed. What’s not to like about this charming place.”CO DONEGAL PUB AND RESTAURANT NAMED BEST IN IRELAND was last modified: October 17th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ArdarabuncranaCO DONEGAL PUB AND RESTAURANT NAMED BEST IN IRELAND
Lifford AC’s Ann Marie McGlynn was in superb form yesterday, winning the Ladies Race in the Waterside Half Marathon in Derry.Ann-Marie Mc Glynn of Liford AC. Pic Gary Foy.McGlynn is making a name for herself as one of the county’s premier female athletes both on the track and on the road.With national senior medals both indoor and outdoor, Ann Marie has extended these performances to the roads, winning the Tullamore Half Marathon only two weeks ago. The Waterside Half Marathon win, in a special year for Derry City, is another prestigious title added to the many accolades already collected this year.While McGlynn was collecting the Ladies prize, her fellow club athletes were also out in force in yesterday’s race, with over 30 athletes taking part.In the Mens 45 category, Bill Duncan was in fine form finishing in second place, while Danny Burns was also to the fore finishing second in the Mens 65 category. For some of the club’s more experienced athletes, there were personal best performances to enjoy at this stage of the season.Many club athletes were also taking part in their first Half Marathon, which for most was only a distant dream a few short months ago. The ability to get both to the start and finish lines is a credit to the stewardship of Danny Burns of an incredibly successful Fit4Life group. With over 100 such runners in the club, there is an old saying in athletics, you’ve got to walk before you can run. It is this philosophy of working each and every athlete step by step towards the best of his/her ability that has marked the Lifford club as one of the premier athletic clubs in the county.Around the course, there was a huge Lifford AC support, cheering each and every athlete towards home. Such support is invaluable, plays a big part in performances, and a big part of the journey home for every athlete.A few sore legs today but mixed with great sense of satisfaction from all the finishers. Well done to all.LIFFORD ACs McGLYNN WINS WATERSIDE HALF MARATHON was last modified: September 9th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ann Marie McGlynnWaterside Half-Marathon
